Apologies for the delay on this post. My computer died at the end of December so this post as well as my end of the year wrap-up and my Favorite Fifteen Films of 2020 were delayed. If you follow me on social, you probably saw that I left my job at the beginning of December as well, so this month threw me for a bit of a loop. As always though, you will find everything I watched in December, a breakdown by decade, and a few favorites after the cut.
Dorothy Dandridge: He won’t give me a chance, Mama.
Ruby Dandridge: Well, if you’re waiting for them to give you a chance, you’re gonna have a hard road. Honey, you have to take your chances.
Chris: You are very beautiful.
Sherry: Thank you.
Chris: Uh, how did I come off? Too stuffy?
Sherry: Well, you certainly don’t act like one of the top ten minds in America.
Chris: Really? How many of them have you met?
Sherry: You’ll be eight. Professor Hostetler at M.I.T. was number six.
Chris: Old Professor Hostetler? Isn’t he dead?
Sherry: He is now.
The first time I saw Valley Girl, I rented it from Netflix and I watched it three times in a 24-hour period before I returned it. I then immediately bought the DVD. I have seen it countless times (including twice on the big screen!). I just love it so much. It is endlessly watchable.
